We go for Sushi - not the table cooking experience which I do not like. We were on vacation and my husband and son wanted the "all you can" eat sushi at Benihana's. We stopped in, and it was happy hour 5-7:30 half off quite a bit of sushi and cocktails, beer wine, etc. We thought it would just be too long of a wait, but found it to be really enjoyable atmosphere. We just sat in the sushi bar lounge, having a few drinks and sushi bites. Around 7:20 I ordered a roll from the half off happy hour, and hubby and son started on the "all you can" and they sure all you can ! The food was great; much better than what we have in Novi, Michigan. The waitstaff, sushi makers, host were wonderful polite, friendly accommodating. It was quieter, non rushed, clean as can be ! What a change from the Benihana's we normally frequent. It is such a shame to have a such a crummy "box" Benihana's by our home and this fantastic Benihana's out in Scottsdale that we can't come again !
Weird that the chain varies so much; as my hubby and son love sushi, we do the "all you can" as we sure can't afford a teenager's appetite at regular price. It was wonderful, clean, new, excellent service and I highly recommend you stop on in if you are a fan of sushi

Not impressed for price based on food quality. Fair to poor. We did like the uniqueness of cooking in front of you. Seemed way over priced for the taste . Either too talsy or bland. No real unique quality food.

Also sitting with strangers and folks who may not be compatible is a bit odd to us. You get crammed in to the grill seating willy nilly. It would be ok if the food was even good or great but its not

Save your money for these prices you can go to top 10 ranked places on tripadvisor.

Read reviews carefully - will not go again.

So we ate here on Christmas Day. We were overdressed compared to the other diners. The service as far as drinks being replaced was poor. The food was prepared with garlic, every item so everything tasted the same! I would not return when there are many other restaurants.

Consistently boring. Went for grandsons's birthday but would not go back otherwise. Food is unimaginative. My wife's tuna was tasteless.

The Land & Sea meal was excellent--filet & scallops, both delicious and tender. The show is good, and it's a fun place to go with another couple or a group for an entertaining evening of non-fast food.
The noise level is high...which, this evening, was a good thing, as there was a screaming baby at the next grill.
